We know Nintendo’s console passed the entire regional lifetime sales in Japan of its predecessor, the Wii U. Today’s tally (which is around December 31st) sees the Switch with sold a grand total of 3,312,619 units around the local market, while the Wii U has sold 3,329,127 units to clients. Considering that we’re already more than a week beyond that, it’s totally safe to presume that the Wii U was overtaken.

It’s’s worth mentioning that Famitsu marked the overtake with the previous week’s amounts, but Media Produce is generally considered more reliable than the popular magazine, and frequently used by Nintendo itself for its official communicating.

Considering it can’t’ve taken more than a day or two to get the Switch to have marketed over 17,000 additional units in the current pace (and New Year is a very active sales span in Japan, because of the Otoshidama money gifting tradition within households), The Switch likely overtook the Wii U pretty much exactly on its ten month anniversary on the shelves, that was on January 2nd.

This is remarkable considering the Wii U was available for over five years.

More great thing for Nintendo is the Switch’s games totally controlled the Christmas week, exactly as the console dominated the earlier section of this Holiday Shopping year. This is almost definitely going to extend to the first week of January.

On Sony’s leading, while the PlayStation 4 didn’t pull stellar amounts during the Western Holiday season, it’s worth mentioning that the PS4 Guru has seen a rather nice buff to its sales, selling roughly 25% of their PS4 family’s units, indicating that lots of Japanese gamers might be preparing for its impending release of Monster Hunter World.
